Peebles is an idyllic market town that straddles the River Tweed, nestled amongst some of the most outstanding landscapes in the UK. Situated just 23 miles from Edinburgh, this incredible area of natural beauty holds many treasures and is filled with activities for the entire family to enjoy.
The River Tweed that runs through Peebles is most famous for its excellent Salmon fishing and so attracts hundreds of visitors from all over the world, right up until the seasons end in November. Some of the most popular beats fetch up to 4000 a week, although good fishing can still be had at a much more reasonable price. Those that have little interest for fishing will also find that activities such as walking and cycling are also popular along the banks of this majestic river.
One of the most surprising things about Peebles is the diversity of the holidays on offer here. The gorgeous market town can provide anything from luxury cottage holidays with fine dining opportunities in award-winning restaurants, to simple rambling holidays. In more recent years, Peebles has started to make a name for itself as a centre for arts, with a great range of traditional and contemporary local art available for visitors to enjoy.
Peebles truly is a town for all seasons, with something on offer all year round. The town's quaint character, with its medieval alleys and closes and the natural beauty of the landscape that surrounds it, is something that will not be forgotten. With sporting events and festivals happening at various times over the year, there is always a reason to visit Peebles.
